Hiccup could contain himself no longer. ‘Is this true?’ he burst out.
‘Is the world really a circle that has no end?
‘I have no idea,’ replied Old Wrinkly calmly. ‘As I told you, this is a story.
Be quiet and I’ll tell you the end.’

Today is 12th of April, so I went for 12% (as I have this book as an ebook).

That contact, his chest against my back, his arm around my waist, always frazzled me. It was too much and not nearly enough all at once, but it was the only thing that helped me fall asleep.
